  • 3. Combine garbanzo bean flour water (you can thin with more water if necessary), garlic granules, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper in a bowl to create batter.
  • 4.   Dip each floret into batter and coat liberally. Shake off extra but make sure each one is well coated.
  • 5.   Place coated florets on sheet pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Check on them repeatedly to ensure they don’t burn.
